Since 1897, Calvert School’s vision has been to provide children with a solid foundation in education, giving them the opportunity to achieve excellence. The financial aid program is designed to help families who could not otherwise afford the cost of a Calvert education by helping to fill the gap between tuition fees and the family’s ability to pay those costs.
About the Program
Calvert School is committed to maintaining a diverse student body that is representative of the cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity of the surrounding communities. We believe that economic diversity contributes to a strong and healthy school and we are committed to providing financial aid on the basis of family need. To assist in identifying families with financial need, Calvert utilizes the services of TADS Financial Aid Assessment to collect basic financial information.
Using TADS’s Financial Aid Assessment as a guide, both Calvert School and TADS prepare a need analysis that suggests the amount a family can contribute for educational costs. Information gathered by TADS provides the Calvert School Financial Aid Committee with a starting point for determining how much financial assistance may be offered. It is important that applicants address all financial aid documents with total disclosure and candor.
Families receiving financial aid must reapply each year. Any significant changes in income may affect the amount of the award.
Complete the application on the TADS website.
TADS charges a fee of $34.00 for their service. Further information regarding fees and instructions for filling out the appropriate forms can be found on the TADS website.
